Not as much done as I would like over the last couple of weeks. Its been over a 100 degrees in my garage, even though I had the door open, with high humidity. Couldn’t spend as much time as I wanted working. I hope to get everything but the finish done over the long 4th weekend.

I’d call that a great start. I look forward to seeing your progress after the 4th. Do take some time to celebrate though. Have a good holiday Gary.

Hi Gary;

It’s looking good so far.

I wouldn’t rush it if it were me. Less boo boo’s taking your time.

And in that kind of heat?

Have fun;

Gary, lookin’ good! Yeah, that’s too hot. Go to the beach with your sketchbook and a woodworking magazine or two. :)

I know how you fill, the heat down here in South Texas is unbearable. As yours, my garage is averaging 100 degrees every day, my work time is only is from 7-9 am and 7-10 pm. But again, great looking piece.
